What are Faulty E-Cig Burns?
An e-cigarette can cause serious injuries, including faulty e-cig burns, to the user and anyone nearby. These burns can be extremely serious, resulting in chronic pain and permanent cosmetic damage. Many people feel they need to undergo plastic surgery in order to resolve the scarring. In some cases, this works, but many people are left too seriously scarred to ever fully restore their appearance.
In addition to exploding e-cigs, there is also the risk of other fires developing due to electrical faults. This can occur when the electronic cigarette is plugged in and charging. If you leave your e-cig plugged in overnight, the chance of an electronic failure occurring is increased. This can easily cause fires to start, or the cigarette to explode.
What Causes E-Cigarettes to Explode?
Electronic cigarettes will normally explode due to a failure with the lithium battery. These batteries can suffer from ‘thermal runaway’, which means they will overheat. This can release a specific kind of gas which will set alight, causing the e-cig to explode.
What Else Can Go Wrong with E-Cigarettes?
Another kind of electrical failure which vaporisers can suffer from is down to incorrect chargers. These chargers can be too powerful, causing the e-cigarette to overheat. In some case, the e-cig won’t explode, but emit a jet of flame causing serious burns.
What Kinds of E-Cig Injuries are Common in the UK?
Whenever a faulty e-cigarette explodes, it can cause a range of injuries. These can include:
- Minor to Serious Faulty E-Cig Burns.
- Lacerations and Bruising.
- Broken Bones.
- Broken Teeth.
These injuries can be extremely painful and cause long-term cosmetic damage to the user.
How Much Compensation Could I Receive for Faulty E-Cig Burns in the UK?
The level of personal injury compensation that you will be able to claim depends on the severity of your injuries. The more serious your burns, the more compensation you will be entitled to. As such, the level of money you can receive is tied to the pain and suffering you have been forced to undergo, and the long-term health concerns you will be left with.
